The purpose of this research is to extract the essence of expert technology teachers’ strategies for promoting students creativity. We carried out semi structured interview to 5 expert technology teachers in Japan, and asked about strategies and intentions of their instruction for promoting students’ creativities. As a result, 32 categories were exracted that could be devided into 4 categories, such as intentions for teaching, lesson planning, implementation, and evaluation. For example,  “importance of collaboration”,”relation with intellectual property”, “consideration about constraint of curriculum” , “supporting student’s expression of his/her ideas”, and so on were included in these categories.
